    Therese from VA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    can you give me the website where I can find basic information about cruises: destinations, costs, booking, etc

    Ahoy and welcome to planDisney, Therese! Planning a cruise with Captains Mickey and Minnie, you ain't never had a friend like the Disney Cruise Line website.

    At the top of the screen, you have the option to search cruises based on your preferences for timing, destinations, and departure ports. You can select as much information as you would like based on your needs and your flexibility. For example, if you want to cruise in the fall, you can pick September, October, and November and the search will look at all the itineraries within this timeframe. 

    Once you enter these preferences, the next screen shows you the cruises that match. You can use this list or enter additional search filters, such as looking for a themed cruise (like Marvel Day at Sea or Halloween on the High Seas); a particular ship; and the one I use most often, the number of nights I wish to be aboard the ship.

    The website will show you a list of the different itineraries selected based on the criteria you entered, such as 3-Night Bahamian Cruise from Fort Lauderdale and 7-Night Southern Caribbean Cruise from San Juan. Next to the itinerary that interests you, select "Show Dates" to see the specific dates the itinerary is offered. The site guides you through steps to enter the number of people in your traveling party and everyone's ages; and then how to select a specific stateroom by location. You will get information on the price for your family for the chosen itinerary and stateroom. You can easily book the cruise through this process. You can also call Disney Cruise Line and speak with a Cast Member if you prefer. 

    One way to explore the destinations is by looking at the Port Adventures. If you scroll down to "Port Adventures by Destination," you can see information about the ports for different destinations like the Bahamas, Mediterranean, Hawai'i, Alaska, and so many others. The only caution with this site: you will want to go to them all! In addition to getting a sense of all you can do at the ports that may be part of your cruise, you can also filter the Port Adventures to show you excursions that are aligned to the types of experiences and activity levels you would like to have. 

    If this is your first Disney Cruise, there is so much I'd love to tell you. I'll start with all that is included on your cruise. Dinner each night is in one of the main dining rooms, and with rotational dining, you get to enjoy them with a dining team that meets you each night on your cruise. There are beverage stations on board with access to sodas, coffee and tea, all included. There is also 24/7 room service. The only recommendation from a fellow cruiser, tips for room service are not required but certainly appreciated. 

    Disney Cruises have incredible entertainment with Broadway-style shows, current Disney movies in the theater, and some cruises even have fireworks at sea. You can see the list of Onboard Activities online, too. 

    As you get started planning, please come back to planDisney with any questions you have. We are happy to help!

    I hope a Disney Cruise is in your future. They are the backdrop to so many of my family's favorite vacations and memories for life.

    Happy Planning,
